Title: Forget My Name Author: J. S. Monroe Publisher: Head of Zeus Published: 13th June 2019 Format: Paperback Source:: Review Copy from Publisher Add It:Amazon UKGoodreads. Summary:You are outside your front door. There are strangers in your house. Then you realise… You can’t remember your name.She arrived at the train station after a difficult week at work. Her bag had been stolen, and with it, her identity. Her whole life was in there –passport, wallet, house key. When she tried to report the theft, she couldn’t remember her own name. All she knew was her own address.Now she’s outside Tony and Laura’s front door. She says she lives in their home. They say they have never met her before.One of them is lying.
This is one of those books that has you guessing and mis-guessing from the very first page which definitely made this an interesting book to read. With a narrator who has amnesia and can not even remember her name to other things going on that just seem a little off, this book has a full on atmosphere of mistrust which made it very addictive and hard to put down. I simply had to know what was going on and where it was all going to end up. This helped to make this book a fast-paced, page turner read. Along with this atmosphere, there was also a really interesting plot that kept me interested through out. Not going to lie, I was really invested in this story. I needed to know who our main protagonist was, where she came from and why she had ended up at Tony and Laura’s house.
J. S. Monroe does a brilliant job of building up the suspense and tension in this book whereby everyone second guesses our main protagonist. Continually switching between different narratives, the author really pulls at your strings as you try and work out what is really going on. I absolutely love this style of storytelling and it worked really well in this book as it kept the mystery alive. There were moments that made my blood run a little cold and moments that I really felt for the characters in the book too. It was such an experience of emotions reading this book and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys thrillers and mysterious novels!
